COVID-19 vaccine to be available in Britain and Northern Ireland

The UK has become the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for widespread use.

The Covid-19 jab - which has shown 95 per cent efficacy - will be available in Britain from early next week.

Healthcare workers and nursing home staff are expected to be among the first to be vaccinated in the UK.

It will also be made available in Northern Ireland.

Those over the age of 80, care home staff, as well as health and social workers will be the first to get it.

Deputy First Minister Michelle O'Neill has said the first phase of roll out will be for priority groups.

While the North's Health Minister has warned people not to let their guard down now a vaccine has been approved.

Robin Swann has tweeted to say there will still be difficult days to come, but the future is brighter.
